ASUU Accuses LASU Management of Trying to Disrupt its Congress
The union had released statement accusing the university of attempting to cause chaos and inflict injuries on officials.
However, the university countered its statement, insisting that the school cannot partake in such demeaning activities.
ASUU’s grievances were expressed in a statement by its secretary, Tony Dansu, revealing how the institution planned to carry out its schemes.
“It has come to the attention of ASUU-LASU executive committee that some suspended members of the Union who are yet to purge themselves and return to the Union with contrition, and in line with its laid down principles, are being mobilized by the University Administration to attend Congress tomorrow.
“The agenda, from what we gather, is for them to ensure Congress doesn’t proceed, and that nothing related to EAA is discussed. We urge members to ignore the desperate antics of the University Administration, and gather peacefully for deliberations tomorrow. Our Earned Academic Allowances is a legitimate demand whose time has come, and no amount of scheming can stop it.”
Countering the accusations, the acting head of the LASU Centre for Information, Press and Public Relations (CIPPR), Ademola Adekoya said the university was too busy beyond to engage in such pettiness.
“I think this administration is too busy to be involved in union matters. Whoever is haunted by its past activities and wrongdoings should settle it within themselves and not involve the management. We have enjoyed peace on this campus and would not want a return to the ugly past,” he said.
